Subject: Who was that I saw you with in the airship?
Fun little compilation of oddball newsreel clips here. It starts out rather somberingly, as most newsreels do, by taking a mini tour after the San Francisco earthquake. But then it almost takes a complete left turn in the next clip as 4 ladies dressed as fairies get off a streetcar and prance around. And so it goes, clip after strange clip, with barely a connection between them Airships, train derailments, floods, and parades all come and go, and it's actually a lot of fun.
